What Do Financial Planning Lawyers Do?
A skilled financial lawyer will be familiar with New York laws and how they apply to each client’s unique situation. At Davidov Law Group, we understand that your family is different from any other family we work with, and we promise to listen carefully to your needs and goals so we create a financial plan that matches what you want to get out of life.
Financial planning attorneys use their knowledge and understanding to create legal documents that protect your wealth. One powerful tool is a trust. With a trust, you hold your assets in such a way that your wealth is guarded against creditors, predators, and unnecessary taxes. You may choose a trust that allows you to retain control over your assets, called a revocable trust. Or you might want even more protection that can be provided by an irrevocable trust.
Whatever your needs, your lawyer will find the right plan to help you achieve your financial dreams and protect the wealth you have worked a lifetime to obtain.
How Can Trusts Help with My Finances?
A trust is a valuable part of many estate plans because trusts offer such great flexibility regarding how assets are held and distributed. Some trusts even give the grantor, or creator, access to the trust while they are still alive.
Some commonly used trusts are:
- Irrevocable trusts – offer excellent protection from creditors but may be difficult to change or revoke.
- Revocable trusts – have greater flexibility but fewer protective benefits while the grantor is alive.
- Charitable trusts – allow the grantor to minimize their tax burden and give back to their favorite charities.
- Special needs trusts – provide a comfortable life for an individual with special needs without interfering with their Medicaid and Social Security eligibility.
How Do I Pick the Right Financial Planning Lawyers?
When selecting the right financial planning lawyer, you should look for someone who focuses on estate planning and finances regularly rather than picking a firm that offers a wide variety of services. Finding a lawyer focused on one field means they work with that practice area regularly and will know how to handle a variety of financial situations.
You also want financial planning attorneys who listen carefully to you and respect your wishes and goals. Your lawyer should pay attention to what you say and craft your plan according to your desires.
